HowTo / Notes

Steps to get it working
The game has been tested by me to work very good with Wine 1.7.43 - versions below of that have produced various problems. Make sure to use the latest wine.
  • Before installing the game through Steam, the .NET installer inside of the game directory has to be removed. It will hang and possibly trash the wineprefix.
  • Afterwards, run winetricks mwo=enabled d3dx9 dxdiagn
  • Open up winecfg and set d3d11.dll to Disabled

The game will run now. UPlay's online save feature will not work, though.
